In a large Dutch oven, heat olive oil and butter over medium-high heat. When foamy, add shallots and stir frequently for 4-6 minutes until golden brown. Add garlic and squash; season with salt and pepper. Stir in barley until well coated with oil. Add broth and 1/2 cup water. Add chopped sage and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cover for 35 minutes until barley and squash are tender. Remove from heat and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with Brie.
